This Manor house built in 1801 is the perfect place for a relaxing family holiday. It will comfortably house three families and with seven acres to roam in there is always the possibility of finding somewhere quiet and peaceful. In the grounds there is a private heated swimming pool and hard surface tennis court. The grounds also go down to the river where you can canoe and fish. Inside the house there is a fully equipped kitchen, large dining room and separate lounge both with open fireplaces for winter comfort. There is also a utility room and downstairs WC. There is a guardian who lives on site, in a separate house, who will help out with any problems or emergencies and the occasional babysitting.
Local ameneties: Although the house is in a quiet rural location, it does not take long to get to the local towns which offer good shopping and eating facilities. A little further away is a golf course, Le Manoir de Beauvoir. Also available is fishing on a lake behind the house with consent of the next door farmer, can be arranged via the Guardians.
There are markets on in all the local towns each on a different day of the week, all offering lots of local produce.
For a full day out you could aim for the beach at La Rochelle it will take about 2 hours via Poitiers. Also there is Futurascope which takes about 40 minutes by car. If you are here on the 29th of any month there is a market at Les Herolles - it is one of the eldest in France said to date back some 500 years, it is well worth a visit and I promise that you could buy anything from a loaf of bread to a tractor and of course a donkey and a couple of geese, it takes about 15 minutes to drive.
For the more adventurous a TGV goes from Poitiers to Paris taking about 90 minutes.
